Delighted to report that both our Under 11's and our Under 14's are Champions of Middlesex after yesterday County Finals Day at Teddington.
Fuller reports from both sides to follow but, by all accounts, the end of the Under 11's Final against Teddington will go down in history as one of the most remarkable ever. At the start of the last over, Teddington required 3 to win with 5 wickets in hand. Nikhil Malik then took a hat-trick off the first 3 balls. The 4th ball produced a run out and the last two just 2 singles. The scores were level and Richmond the winners by virtue of losing fewer wickets.
The Under 14's rounded off their season with a revenge win against Uxbridge who they lost to in the Under 13 Final in 2017. This time, having made 142, they collectively bowled very well to see off their opponents.
Simply fantastic achievement from both sides - the young players and the coaches who have put in so much work this season.
